Never let your dreams go away - JWA champion putting in the hard work
Since 2015, current Janesville Wrestling Alliance heavyweight champion Iniesta has been working toward his dreams following in the footsteps of his wrestling heroes, like Shawn Michaels, Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio, Tiger Mask, Chris Jericho & Kurt Angle. He has studied their actions in and out of the ring, trying to perfect his craft.
Growing up in Woodstock, he always dreamed of getting into wrestling. In his second year of playing college football at Northpark University, he could feel himself losing interest in playing. So, still needing to harness his passion to compete, he reached back into his dreams of being a professional wrestler. He then transferred to Columbia College which was more affordable and allowed him to begin his wrestling journey.
Iniesta was trained early in his career by former WWE wrestler KC James and JWA’s Andy Anderson. Currently, he continues to work on his skills at Chicago Style Wrestling with Jason Paul and Steve Boz.
Saturday night, Nov. 26, 2022, Iniesta takes on Lennox Leone for the JWA heavyweight title. It's one of eight matches slated for the Thanksgiving Throwdown at the Glen Erin Golf Club/Celtic House. The card includes three title bouts and a preshow Battle Royale. Doors open at 5 p.m - Preshow Hotdog Battle Royale. Event starts at 7 p.m. - Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the door or online here.
Come out and see some of the hungriest and best pro wrestling in the Midwest. Get the dream started just like Iniesta did.
Janesville Wrestling Alliance call themselves, "The forward thinking innovators responsible for bringing LIVE pro wrestling action to Janesville!"
If you see me in the front row Saturday night at the Thanksgiving Showdown at Glen Erin Golf Club/Celtic House, stop over and give me a high five.
